Publisher Description

A hilarious and heartwarming New York Times bestselling novel—the basis for the acclaimed major motion picture!

"There's rich, there's filthy rich, and then there's crazy rich ... A Pride and Prejudice-like send-up about an heir bringing his Chinese-American girlfriend home to meet his ancestor-obsessed family.” –PEOPLE

When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country’s most eligible bachelor.
 
On Nick’s arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.

Look for Kevin Kwan’s latest novel, Sex & Vanity!

Great book!

I wish I read it before the movie! Either way both were well done in their own ways, and of course with the book coming first I can’t be disappointed! Such a great story! Time to start the next!

Some Parts Good. Some Parts Filler.

There were parts of this book that I very much enjoyed. Many characters were well developed and interesting (Astrid). However, many characters were unnecessary and the detail devoted to them, including the settings in which they are presented serve merely as filler. Overall, I stuck with this book through the end because I can’t stand to leave a book unfinished, and I did enjoy parts of it. However, I can’t recommend it.
